The Warp Fallback: Eternal Returns VI: Here Again, Ten Years After: Fall Back to the Womb

December 12, 2022, Monday, 8 pm

at the Kunstkapel, Prinses Irenetraat 19

The Fall Back: Eternal Returns program comes to an end of this date which represents ten years since the very first event connected with the CLOUD endeavour happened at the Kunstkapel (12-12-12). One of the first impressions of the space with its built-in architectural โ€œsoftโ€cloth walls (courtesy of former tenants Atelier 21) was that of a womb. We now imagine the ultimate Fall Back: Eternal Return imaginable would be that of the return to the womb which immediately called these reflections of motherhood both dark and light into a distinct order.

Levanna is the roman goddess of child care and specifically as a force which picks up and lifts the child into the airโ€ฆ an action which combines attraction with terror, ultimate care with huge risk. With this piece the duet of dance and music, body and violin, attempt to create a gospel spiritual on this motif combining the efforts of a new first time mother and an active healer to create a unique and authentic dialogue in the realm of the spirit.

An elderly woman talks to her daughter on the phone. However, one never hears the daughter answering, but only follows the mother’s minute-long monologue. The mother is represented by a ventriloquist doll who talks the whole time and reveals her omnipresence as a dominant, desperate and bitter character. The artist says โ€œCapturing my feeling of being mutterseelenallein ( all alone in the world) in relationship to my mother figure allowed me to liberate the missing voice.โ€

The Shadow Seminary School was formed in 2018 to ruminate on the actual space of the Kunstkapel, its history and its direct link to the catholic church particularly as a seminary rehearsal space designed by an architect who is singularly known as a Catholic futurist. The project grew out of Thomas de Quinceyโ€™s Three Mothers of Sorrow which we conceive as the dark absence in the edifice of the Church. This trio conjoins original members of the group with a phantasmal reunion of these three dark mothers which will serve as a prelude to the fifth part of the work which reflects on the future of the Kunstkapel one thousand years from now as a different sort of spiritual edifice.

FallBack: Eternal Returns V: Fall Back to the Loom: Recurring Figures in a Weaveworld

FallBack: Eternal Returns V: Fall Back to the Loom: Recurring Figures in a Weaveworld

December 11, 2022, Sunday, 8 pm

At the Kunstkapel, Prinses Irenestraat 19

The inevitable moment has come at last when the Warp can finally fall back into its true inspiration which is the weaving loom. The warp and weft represent the vertical and horizontal lines respectively in the process of weaving and this is the metaphor that the warp was actually founded on in spite of the other very convenient references to the warped space time continuum, the time warp or the warp speed and warp drive from Star Trek. Thanks to loom collector and artist Samira Vogel an actual loom will be set up for the first time in the center of the Warp space and it will serve as the driving force behind an evening of very warpy experiments.


โ–ท Samira Vogel performs ๐™๐™ฃ๐™ง๐™–๐™ซ๐™š๐™ก๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™’๐™–๐™ง๐™ฅ

Samira Vogel is a weaver, artist and educator from Switzerland, based in Amsterdam, She uses weaving not only as a material and carrier of stories but also as a method and a tool to think through different processes of making and being. Samira explores the nature of collectivity by creating interactive weaving installations. โ€œthe loom expanding, its warp unraveled into space, threads held in tension,,creating a surface of display, carrying images of the before, .remembering the journey, of fibre – thread โ€“ warpโ€ฆthe sounds of wood on wood, the loom as an instrument,. can you hear the fibres intertwining?the threads telling stories? the weaving coming-into-being?โ€

โ–ทโ–ท Samm Lewis performs ๐™๐™๐™š 3 ๐™๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š๐™จ, ๐™€๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ค๐™™๐™š 2: ๐˜ผ ๐™†๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ฉ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™˜๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™š

Samm Lewis will perform on a Knitting machine utilizing punch cards. She will knit melodic patterns on the day on which her mother was born. Each pattern comes from a memory formed with her mother and the rythmic sounds of the knitting machine recall the conversations they had at these times.

โ–ทโ–ทโ–ท Perpetual Bike Crash performs ๐˜พ๐™ง๐™–๐™จ๐™ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™ช๐™ง๐™จ๐™š ๐™ค๐™ฃ ๐™‡๐™ค๐™ค๐™ข๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ: ๐™๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ค๐™ข ๐™ฌ๐™ค๐™ง๐™™๐™จ ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ค๐™ข ๐™ข๐™š๐™–๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™จ, ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ค๐™ข ๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™จ ๐™˜๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™ฉ๐™š ๐™ง๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™๐™ค๐™ข ๐™›๐™š๐™š๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ๐™จ

Perpetual Bike Crash is the combined forces of Francisco Garrido (Guitar and Composition), Micheal Murray(Alto Sax) and Joshua Lutz(Piano and Keyboards) who together have absorbed influences from jazz, minimalism, ambient, electronic and film music. although here they have designed themselves a crash course in looming music and how to work with a weaver. The group is interested in weaving with the here and now and connecting with the fall backs we no encounter in an effort to return to normal: The randomness of the apparition of Covid had everyone rethink the way the were living and ultimately Rethink the meaning of social situations and patterns that we were used to.

โ–ทโ–ทโ–ทโ–ท Todo Modo Too (duo): Alan Purves and Dirk Bruinsma perform ๐™ˆ๐™–๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™–๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ ๐™‡๐™ค๐™ค๐™ข ๐™๐™š๐™ข๐™ฅ๐™š๐™ง๐™–๐™ฉ๐™ช๐™ง๐™š ๐™ž๐™จ ๐˜พ๐™ค๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™ก๐™ฎ!

The Ensemble Todo Modo is a group which devotes itself exclusively to the playing of myriad types of objects. For this effort two of the group members absorb a loom and a knitting machine as part of their collectivity and unite in expanding the resonance and rythm within the space.

Our Dilating Arcana: The Realm of Crossed Destinies

– The Warp presents –

Julia Kiryanova and The Alternation Project perform

Our Dilating Arcana: The Realm of Crossed Destinies

An exhibition of visual art, film, sound and performance

December 9 and 10, Friday and Saturday, 8 pm

At the Kunstkapel, Prinses Irenestraat 19

The Alternation Project collective includes Julia Kiryanova (Paintings, tapestry, body designs and concept) , Lee Ellickson (mise en scene and concept), Elizaveta Kuzyakova (sound score and performance), Reon Cordova (film compilation), Simone Goslinga (dramaturgy), and performers Antti Uimonen, Lisa Hofmann, Laura Klinkenberg, Tinka Charmant, Eva van der Zand and Mova BoRee Aske

The exhibition can be viewed from December 8 thru 10, from 2 pm to 5 pm, as well as before and after the performances at 8 pm, and from 9.15pm to 11 pm.

Over the last two years our image of our world and our place in it has undergone radical change. Never before have we confronted our own lives from such a state of remove and with as dramatic an overview. Between Climate Change, Covid fear and World conflict, we now confront a transformed idea about destiny: for ourselves and the planet. Yet, the world has always tried to grapple with its destiny and one of the most resilient methods for this was found in a deck of cards known as the Tarotโ€ฆ

This project is an exhibition with performance which it seems might only be possible in the unique 360 degree round architectural space which the Warp occupies.

This exhibition will comprise large scale drawings/paintings, short films, soundtracks and a large circular floor painted/drawn work of ten meters in diameter which will become a stage space for an evolving series of movement performances byย  performers whose bodies are uniquely painted to coincide with the character of specific cards.ย 

The exhibition is based on a highly personal reimagining by the artist of the now familiar Tarot deck which is a 78 card pack traditionally used for divination and readings which can answer specific questions or foretell the future. The Tarot deck has both a major and a minor arcana of identifiable picture cards. The highly symbolic and numbered 22 card Major Arcana is the most identifiable aspect of the Tarot deck. These cards are highly associative and suggestive of narrative lines but soon enough these narrative lines will blur and allow entry into a widening or dilating space of realization of an ever bigger pictureโ€ฆย
